Daily Synopsis.

Greetings all I'm back and here with you for the next two weeks as Chad heads on leave. He is off to chase the animals from Tanzania, taking his talent global. As you can hear no jealousy here, besides I get to bring you all the wonderful sightings that we are bound to have now that Chad is not here!

Jokes a side, the viewing did improve around four o'clock yesterday afternoon, coincidently at about the same time Chad left the reserve, as the guys found Mbali, a very welcome Leopard sighting. Being the first Leopard sighting in a number of days in the North the guys naturally spent as much time with her as possible as she made her way towards Sohobele Dam. Along the way they were privileged enough to watch her stalk and unfortunately not catch a Guinea Fowl, well I guess it depends on who's side you site, I'm sure the Guinea Fowl considers itself fortunate! After her unsuccessful hunt she proceeded to the dam where the guys got to watch her drink before heading off themselves for sundowners.

I'll be joining the boy's from Thursday afternoon so you can expect a fuller recount of our adventures from then but until then I'll keep you updated with the sightings and a brief overview.
